Arsenal have confirmed that Rob Holding has suffered an ACL injury on his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

The statement on the club’s official website says:

“Further to the injury sustained during our match at Manchester United on Wednesday night, we can confirm that Rob Holding has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee.

“Rob will undergo surgery to repair this in the coming days. The rehabilitation process is expected to take between six to nine months.

“Everyone at the club will now be working as hard as we can to ensure Rob is back on the pitch as soon as possible.”

Arsenal v Huddersfield Premier League Preview 0

Posted on December 07, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal will be confident of continuing their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions, as the Gunners host struggling Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners continued their recent promising form by recording a 2-2 draw at Manchester United. United may be unconvincing form, but they still have a good record at Old Trafford, so it may be considered a decent result with time.

Arsenal have had a habit of drawing league games of late, though, as the team from north London have drawn four of their last six games in the Premier League.

Lacazette needs to return to the starting line-up 0

On Wednesday night, Arsenal’s French international forward Alexandre Lacazette was once again the key to the Gunners picking up a result. The forward’s shot on goal took a deflection to give the north London team the lead in a 2-2 draw at Manchester United.

It may not have been a winning goal, but it was another big contribution from the former Lyon star to Unai Emery’s side picking up a result.

Coming off the bench again

I have to admit, I expected Lacazette to start last night’s match against United. However, Gunners boss Emery decided to start with a more cautious approach, which is understandable, as even in poor form the Red Devils are a threat at Old Trafford.

No punishment for Fellaini 0

Arsenal drew 2-2 against Manchester United on Wednesday evening at Old Trafford in the 15th round of this season’s Premier League roller coaster, adding game number 20 to their truly impressive unbeaten run. The Gunners led twice, but the home team managed to pull level both times. Shkodran Mustafi gave Arsenal the lead in the 26th minute only to have to cancelled out by Anthony Martial just four minutes later, and the hope for victory briefly reignited by Alexandre Lacazette in the 68th minute was dashed by Jesse Lingard after 60 seconds.

Last night’s game at Old Trafford was wild to say the least, in many different ways. Arsenal were able to go toe to toe with Manchester United and prove that, in many ways, they were the superior team. Courtesy of their win against Tottenham Hotspur it felt like there wasn’t quite as much pressure on their shoulders, whereas United badly needed a result. It was back and forth, it was tense, and most importantly it was exciting.

20 unbeaten 0

Well, they did it.

After battling and clawing their way through some seriously tough games over the course of the last few months, Arsenal have reached a point that few could’ve imagined they’d get to – 20 games unbeaten in all competitions. It’s a feat that deserves to be spoken about if only for a few minutes, because god only knows when it’s going to happen again. We know that we’ve done this for quite a few of their landmarks that have been achieved along the way, but it just feels right to praise it.

Arsenal can end their Old Trafford hoodoo on Wednesday night 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal’s 19-game unbeaten record in all competitions faces a potential test on Wednesday night, as the Gunners visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Old Trafford has become something a wasteland for Arsenal teams in recent years. In fact, the Gunners have won just once in 15 games at United in all competitions. The one win was back in 2015 in the FA Cup in a 2-1 win.

Arsenal’s last Premier League victory at Old Trafford was 12 years ago. It is fair to say it is not the Gunners favourite ground to visit.

Winter dilemma 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The busy winter period is almost upon us, and when we say busy, we mean it. Arsenal are set to play eight games in the month of December in all competitions, followed by two more by the 5th of January – so, logistically speaking, they’re going to be playing 10 games in the span of a month. While we love watching the beautiful game as much as the next guy, even we think that is excessive, and not just for the fans, but for the players.

Welbeck to go on a free? 0

Posted on December 05, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Danny Welbeck is an intriguing figure and we mean that in the nicest way possible. He was always being groomed for the top of the mountain in English football, and contrary to popular belief, we think he’s lived up to the hype. While there have certainly been a few stumbles along the way, the same can be said of many top stars who are now enjoying great success on a European and world stage. We aren’t about to suggest that he’s the second coming of Henry or anything like that, but you get our point.

Arsenal and Spurs charged 0

The FA have charged both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur for ‘failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion’ during the North-London Derby at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

After Jan Vertonghen handled the ball in his own penalty area, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the 10th minute from the penalty spot, and the undesired scenes started then and there as a Spurs supporter threw a banana skin towards the Gabonese in a clear move to make a racial insult. Spurs officials have announced an investigation and a lengthy ban for the person responsible for such a despicable act.
